We're celebrating the holidays with a fresh content update!

A new author, David Avalos, MSN, APRN, AOCNS, CIC, lends his expertise to our revised chapter on infections associated with vascular access devices. The updated chapter examines the various types of devices, how to choose (and properly use) the best one for your patient, and strategies to prevent and treat associated infections.

Happy reading! And, as always, feel free to drop us a line at and let us know what you think.
